According to the Foreign Office spokesperson, Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri has said that in order to seek peaceful resolution of this longstanding dispute as per international legitimacy, Pakistan and India need to discuss all outstanding issues, including the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.
Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri while addressing the weekly news briefing in Islamabad said that durable peace, security and development in South Asia hinge on peaceful resolution of longstanding Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India.
The FO spokesperson said that the Kashmir issue remains the central point to any meaningful engagement between India and Pakistan but unfortunately, India vitiated the environment through its illegal and unilateral actions of August 5–2019.
He also said that the onus is therefore on New Delhi to create an enabling environment for a meaningful and result-oriented dialogue between Pakistan and India.
The FO spokesperson while regarding the role of 3rd-party facilitation in the resolution of the Kashmir dispute said that Pakistan has always maintained that the international community has an important role to play in averting risk to peace and stability in the region.
Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said while responding to a question that Pakistan is a peace-loving country, but at the same time, it is resolutely resolved to defend itself against any misadventure, added that Pakistan continues to promote peace, security and stability in the region for the prosperity of its own people and of the South Asian region as a whole.
The false spin by the Indian media that Sikh Yatrees are stranded in Pakistan is unfortunate.
Pakistan remains committed to facilitating Sikh Yatrees from around the world, including from India for visiting their religious sights in Pakistan, He added
